Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

Extend the iPod's Capabilities with Advice in New Book -- Much has happened in the iPod world of late, so if you haven't been keeping up on the many things you can do with your iPod other than play music, check out the second edition of "Take Control of Your iPod: Beyond the Music," by Steve Sande. Almost completely rewritten, the 134-page book covers the latest in iPod technology, explains the basics for new users, and helps everyone find more ways to get the most out of their iPods. You'll learn about over a dozen major iPod uses, ranging from reading email and RSS feeds to running Keynote and PowerPoint presentations.

Steve begins with colorful comparison charts of the various iPod models to help you figure out which you have, since you may not realize that the iPod you bought few years ago is considered a "second-generation iPod" or you may have received your iPod as an unidentified hand-me-down. After a brief look at charging, syncing, and troubleshooting, Steve jumps into the many things you can do with an iPod, including obvious uses like listening to podcasts, watching video downloaded from the Internet, and exercising with the Nike+iPod Sport Kit. But the real fun comes in putting an iPod to less obvious uses like recording lectures or podcast interviews, reading text-based electronic books, and displaying maps.

Owners of the first edition of the ebook should click the Check for Updates button on the cover to download a free update (available to those who purchased after 01-Sep-06) or to access an update discount.
